The International Association of Dry Cargo Shipowners (INTERCARGO) on Wednesday (24 November) released a statement supporting IMO’s MEPC 77 shipping decarbonisation ambition during its remote meeting this week.
“Given the harsh realities and the tremendous challenges of decarbonisation and of the associated energy transition, from technological, economic, and societal points of view, INTERCARGO fully supports the drive and the ambition to achieve zero emission shipping by 2050,” it said.
However, shipowners will only deliver such a target with a drastic and urgently needed acceleration in the commercial development of the required technologies, fuels, propulsion systems and related infrastructure.
IMO’s MEPC 77 is the place for governments / Member States to take action and adopt the necessary measures:
In conclusion, INTERCARGO supports the IMO in meeting the shared, global challenge of delivering on the shipping industry’s decarbonisation agenda and in representing the dry bulk ship owners, managers and operators, invites IMO’s MEPC 77 to take action appropriately.
